Compassionate Allowances in Disability Benefits Claims

The application process for the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs can be complicated and lengthy. But in some cases, individuals can be eligible for the Compassionate Allowance initiative, which expedites the process if their disabilities are clearly severe.

The SSA has a long list of conditions that are eligible for Social Security Compassionate Allowance List , including certain types of cancer, syndromes, diseases and other illnesses.  This number is growing often, but the most up-to-date list can be found at http://www.ssa.gov/compassionateallowances/conditions.htm.

A person who has an eligible condition can be considered for Compassionate Allowance based on general medical information instead of the more in-depth documentation required for the typical Social Security Disability claim. This enables individuals with obviously disabling conditions to receive benefits as quickly as possible.
